The arsenic contained in fluoridating chemicals costs the United States up to six billion dollars a year in added health costs, according to a recent journal article.


KBOO’s Joe Meyer spoke with lead author Dr. William Hirzy and asked him to run the numbers for Portland’s proposed fluoridating chemicals.

Dr Hirzy reports that the arsenic alone will add tens of millions of dollars in health care costs for Portlanders and the fluoride itself will cause damage to developing brains.
